Incident at Selkirk, Manitoba (Aerodrome - runway or taxiway surface condition)
1996-03-27: The pilot of the wheel-ski equipped Cessna 180J, C-FNEY, started the aircraft's engine in order to taxi it to the runway. The aircraft was pointed toward a hangar, but the pilot believed he would be able to turn the aircraft away from the hangar once it began to move. Once the aircraft began to move, the pilot was unable to make the aircraft turn, and it ran into the hangar door. The pilot was not injured, but the aircraft's wing spar was bent, the propeller was destroyed and the engine and engine mounts were damaged. The area where the aircraft was maneuvering was reportedly icy.
